With no resolutions on paper and no intention to change anything, we look forward to our calendars that are slowly but surely filling up with projects, trips, plans and ideas.
To start off this year well, I wanted to add the last finishing touches to my ‘new’ home. Creating my own art wall, like we have done before with clients, was one thing I had on my wish list. It makes me so happy to see my absolute favorite prints and photo’s each day.
Is this also something you would like to try? We have added some tips and tricks below on how to make it look clean, organised and neat (you know me….).
In terms of work, we have some beautiful installations planned. Live Loud Girl will also be going on tour by visiting Playtime Paris again this month to meet some of our fantastic suppliers and hopefully discover some new brands and products.
As we have already entered week 2 of this year, we better get our routines back on track, our coffee supply stocked and our office desks dusted. We are ready to make this a great one and we hope you will join us!
CREATING AN ART WALL A LA LIVE LOUD GIRL
– Let artwork flow around – Hang artwork too far apart – Use some common horizontal lines – Hang it too high up from the furniture – Use different spacings – Use the same space gaps between frames – Use bigger flames and prints – Line them all up – Plan your gallery up front or draw it – Use all the same type of frames
on paper with exact sizes – Try to make it too perfect – Mix size, style, print and photography
in a lively and convincing way
Eyes wide open for the new year, we can almost feel you. Staring into the new year always makes us want to reflect.
This past year we had the chance to create some beautiful spaces for our clients. Two projects where we really could show our Live Loud Girl signature were the Jotun Kids Collection and the five room project – the shared boys room being one of them. These projects allowed us to work with all of our favorite products, partners, colors and people. A creative dream come true both with a Live Loud Girl Signature.
Believe it or not, I am the worst Christmas decorator ever! Yes, I pretend to be an interior stylist and don’t get me wrong: I love the cozy vibe, I’m a s*cker for all Xmas songs so Mariah Carey is always welcomed with open arms and I know the lyrics to ‘Last Christmas’. I love spending these days with the family and appreciate some good food that goes with the festive season.
But when it comes to Christmas styling I feel very far off and feel a bit left out seeing others doing the decorating as they do it soooo much better. My Instagram feed is filled with the most gorgeous trees, wreaths, dinner table settings and happy snuggly families.
We still need to get used to the idea of Xmas in the sun. Living in the Middle East means that our winter months are warm so we spend most of our Xmas holiday on the beach and in the water.
Yet we love getting into the spirit by putting up lights, greenery and having lots of good food. And our annual festive season #LiveLoudGirlXmasGiveAway gets us into the right mood too.
We have partnered up again with some of our incredible partners this year. Brands that we have worked with on residential projects, photoshoots and used in our own homes and strongly believe in. They have been so supportive over the years and since it is that time of year, we want to share the love with our dear followers.
